It's sad how you really have to think about this stuff in the U.S. and the U.K. Sweden and most of the other Nordic countries have a long tradition of allemansrätt. This allows everyone to gather mushrooms, lingonberries, apples, plums, and other delicious wild foods. It also keeps up the traditions associated with the gathering. Mushroom-related poisonings are not as common here because people grow up gathering.

Melissa- It is a shame, probably something to do with being such an overcrowded, small island! Mushroom poisonings do happen over here a fair bit- two women picked some Death caps last season resulting in one death and one in intensive care. Perhaps we Brits may one day grow up learning to gather wild food...
